Transport yourself to a foreign forest moon in a galaxy far, far, away ...
With its natural green colour and a clean taste, this tea comes to us direct-from-farm each spring, and the perfect way to brighten up your cup. With an even, curly leaf, this southern China tea is from a small village in the mountains far away surrounded by old growth forests and high mountains in the very remote Wuyuan area. A rich biological and ecologically significant area, this tea farm is 5 hectares in size and rich in biodiversity. This unique tea has an orchid fragrance, mellow taste of soup of green tea and produced with love. Owned by a husband and wife team, individual tea leaves are hand-picked and sorted to select only the leaves that can curl in this manner. Further, the plucking only takes place in the pre-dawn, when the leaf is covered with a misty dew, which improves the taste and imparts a fullness to the tea character. The liquor has good body and depth without being too earthy.
